A Recycling Centre in Halifax: Integrating Waste and Community
MetadataShow full item record
The primary area of study for this thesis is waste management infrastructure. Through the study and critique of current waste management practices and facilities in Halifax, Canada, a new concept is developed. Removed from the public realm, waste management facilities miss the opportunity to involve the general public. The proposed recycling centre, sited on Dalhousie University’s main campus, intends to promote and demonstrate innovative waste reduction, reuse, and recycling methods through innovative programming and architectural expression. Ultimately, this thesis attempts to prove the environmental, social, and economic benefits inherent to the proposed recycling centre.
